Timothy the Tortoise War Hero.

Whilst walking through the grounds of Powderham Castle i saw amemorial to Timothy the Tortise turns out he was a war hero!
This woman's entry almost reads like a whaaa! Hard to believe that someone could have such fücking awful luck

In spite of her physical problems from a motorcycle accident when she was only 14, in which she broke both legs, one arm, and pelvis, and had steel pins in both legs, she held down a fulltime job that she had to stand on her feet all day, with a bone growing through the bottom of one of her feet. She was clerk and manager of a convenience store and was robbed at gunpoint twice, and both times, was back at work the very next day. She had a hard life, for it to be such a short one. Everything she owned was burned in a fire as it was being moved. All was lost, even the truck and trailer. Tracy worked at one job for four years, without missing one day of work. She suffered a miscarriage with her third baby. She had every reason to see life as nothing but heartache. She had very little in the way of material things, never having a nice home and pretty things to decorate with. She had such few clothes, that they were carried out on one arm, from the closet. All this wasn't enough....then to fight the long hard battle with cancer. She went through the radiation, the chemotherapy, the surgeries, the tests, the exams, hundreds of medications, and yet never gave in to it

edited to add a bit
I think it's brilliant that an ancient reptile can cover himself in glory!

Anyway, that's enough about Mike Jackson, what did the tortoise do?
